Yessireebob, once again, we get to celebrate the infinite talent of Tim Holtz-
you can visit his blog here
I borrowed this stamp from a friend and if I had half a brain, I would have written down the company that makes it, cus I really like it.
(humming "If I Only Had a Brain" from the Wizard of Oz.)
Then I covered a tag with flashing tape and put a little Distress Crackle Paint in Vintage Photo on it.  When it was dry, I edged it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The stamp of course has Distress Inks on it,
in Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Tumbled Glass
and Stickles and Glossy Accents are added for blingishness.
The reinforcer and ephemera are from Mr. Holtz himself.
The fibers are from my stash.
Linda has challenged us to use Distress Ink in a project, Artist's Choice on how we do it-how easy is that?  There are some really breathtaking samples on her website and you can see lots of talent showcased for this week's challenge (not to mention the previous 9 weeks)
to go Gaga. 
(sorry, Lady G)
